Hey friends! Today I have my book review of
Ever Lost is the first book in the Lost Boys of Neverly Prep trilogy.
Trigger Warnings: Slut-Shaming, Sex Scenes, Abuse Mention.
No, not breaking into Panchard Enterprises, I did that on purpose. It was the getting caught part that changed everything. Instead of prison, Peter Panchard offers me a deal; steal something for him and he’ll help me find my little sister.
Now I’m at Neverly Prep wearing a uniform and trying to get close to Lucas Hook, the guy whose safe I need to crack. Did I mention the car and mansion and black card that goes along with this deal? Or the three boys so damned good looking it should be illegal?
They are the Lost Boys and they definitely don’t want me intruding into their lives. Something’s going on and I’m sure it has to do with their missing mother, Wendi. Peter warns me to stay away from his boys, to do what I’m being paid for, but at every turn, the sparks fly between us.
I have a job to do and a sister to find, and getting involved with three guys who are off limits is a bad idea. Especially when Hook is their enemy. But when has a little forbidden ever stopped me?
I’m Ever Darlington and I’ve never been very good at following the rules.
Guilt, betrayal and lies make up EVER LOST, book 1 in the Lost Boys of Neverly Prep, a dark and dirty fast burn contemporary RH academy romance based loosely on the characters from Peter Pan. Complete at 52,000 words. All the players are over 18 and there is a cliffhanger, but I promise it will be worth it!
From GoodReads [x]:
“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.
Ever Lost was a breath of fresh air I sorely needed after the last book I read. What I enjoyed most about Ever lost was the stories’ ability to keep me captivated cover to cover. Which was a huge relief.
I didn’t know what to expect when I started reading this book. Truthfully I actually didn’t know Ever Lost was an actual book until I joined a Reverse Harem book group on GoodReads. I AM SO HAPPY TO HAVE READ EVER LOST. Seriously!
Reading Ever Lost was such a much needed breathe of fresh air. I didn’t think that I’d like this novel because of how Ever Lost is loosely based on Peter Pan. Upon reading Ever Lost though, I found that the story is extremely loosely based off of Peter Pan. Which was great, because I don’t really like the whole Peter Pan story anyway.
Ever Lost ended up swooping me off my feet (pun unintended). There wasn’t ever a dull moment in this story. Throughout reading, I was wanting to know more. When I finished reading Ever Lost, I immediately went searching for the sequel, Ever Found; which is not published until sometime in August 2019 (as far as I’m aware).
Ever Lost was a genuinely enjoyable read for me. I loved the insta-lust, and while there’s only a little bit of romance in this first book, it makes me look forward to reading the rest of Lost Boys of Neverly Prep trilogy even more. Slow-burn romance for the wiiiin!
The characters in Ever Lost are not overly complicated, which was great honestly. And the fact that Ever, Riot, X and Baz have similar beginnings, they’re all very different from one another.
I really enjoyed reading Ever Lost (if you couldn’t tell) so I’m giving Ever Lost, 4 stars.
Have you read Ever Lost? What’d you think of it?
I liked reading Ever Lost so much that I’m actually considering buying myself a copy.
Thank you for stopping by!
See you soon, and Happy Reading!
